LaMira S. Jaecks

January 21, 1924 — August 15, 2023

Schofield

 

LaMira S. Jaecks, 99, of Wausau, departed her loving family on Tuesday, August 15, 2023.

She was born on January 21, 1924, to the late Gustav and Susanna (Boeker) Kersemeier, in Schofield, Wisconsin.

On June 20, 1942, LaMira married Wilbert (Wib) Jaecks at St. Paul’s Church of Christ, in Wausau.  While Wib served in the army during World War II, LaMira began raising their young family.  After the war, they settled in the Wausau area.  LaMira worked many years as a mom, grandma, great-grandma, and recently, a great-great-grandma.  After the death of her beloved Wib in 1984, she survived cancer and continued doing some of her favorite things: cooking, baking, and quilting.  She was even able to go on a trip to Paris with her granddaughter Hope.  In later years, LaMira battled numerous physical challenges, always keeping a positive and sunny attitude.  She enjoyed playing cards, Farkle, and watching the Brewers.

She is survived by her children, Sue (Joe) Sivulka, Caledonia, Gary (Nancy) Jaecks, Wausau, Bruce (Sue) Jaecks, Wausau, Sandi Jaecks, Wausau, Jackie (Ken) Jurkowski, North Fon du Lac, and Rodney Jaecks, Wausau; 11 grandchildren; 21 great grandchildren; and 1 great-great grandson.

LaMira is preceded in death by her husband, Wilbert Jaecks; granddaughter, Linda Sivulka; and siblings, Clarance Kersemeier, Glen Kersemeier and Geneva Gilbertson.

A funeral service will take place on Friday, September 1, 2023, at 11:00 a.m. at St. Paul’s United Church of Christ, with Pastor Philip Schneider officiating.  Visitation will be held from 9:00 a.m. until the time of services at the church.  Burial will take place at Restlawn Memorial Park.

The family wishes to thank Mount View Care Center and its caring staff (you know who you are!)
